The Fourth of July holds special meaning on Minnesota’s Iron Range. Part of it is patriotism, sure, but there’s a sort of midsummer primal yawp going on here as well.

I could provide thousands of words of information about every little town’s whole celebration, but that’s not what people want. They want to know when the parade starts, where the street dances are happening and what night they’re shooting off the fireworks.

That’s what I provide here at MinnesotaBrown.

In the history of this blog, no page generates more traffic than my annual listing of Iron Range 4th of July parades, street dances and fireworks displays. That’s because a lot of people make this an important part of their summer tradition. Have fun out there!

This year’s listing is now available.
